Hey! Im new here so this may be a little rough around the edges lol! :)

So, I have a tank raised clown fish and I want it to host my new LTA. Really my clown fish hasnt shown any interest in it at all. So, is there anything you can think of to help me out. Or from personal experience would be even better . I dont want to move the anemone becasue I think it finally got settled and attached!! :banana: :rotflmao::bln-nice: So can you please give me some advice?! Thanks.

Tank raised clowns can and often will host anemones. Take a look at my avatar. Tank raised percula and an LTA.

There is no guarantee that they will and if they do it could take anywhere from immediately to months. Patience is the key. DO NOT move the anemone. You take the chance of injuring it and it might move on its own to someplace you really don't want it.

I have had luck placing a picture of clowns in a anemone on the glass near the anemone.

Good luck.

The clowns you have will be fine. If you really must have wild caught, you can usually get them from Liveaquaria or iBluewater.
